A Good Mystery...

I love a good mystery.  Especially when you can't guess the ending.  It seems like most movies and books are so formulaic that you're pretty sure who did it half way through the story.  I also prefer my quilt mysteries to be true mysteries as well.  Although honestly, it's still quilting so I don't mind as much if I can figure it out before the big reveal.

I've mentioned before that my quilt bee is doing a mystery right now.  We started in February and receive one clue each month.  It's a 6-month mystery so there are only 2 clues remaining.  I think it's a real puzzler for everyone so far, but I'm loving all the blocks!

In the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that I'm hosting the mystery, so I know what the quilt is going to look like.  However here are all the blocks that make up the quilt, can you guess what it's going to look like?

I'm actually making 2 versions.  The neutral one which I'm going to keep and a patriotic version that I'm going to donate to QOV.

I found this mystery on the internet (what can't you find here?).  I'll post a link to it once my bee has solved it, but if anyone else is interested in it before then, send me email and I'll give you the information.

Sam has been very playful lately.  The warmer weather seems to be helping her arthritis and her kidney's have been doing really well too.  It's nice to see her feeling so great. (Getting old is tough.)

Stay tuned - I hope to be back in the next day or two with the reveal of a quilting goal that's taking me 10 years to reach!

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.

  1. I love a good mystery quilt too Dee! I can't quite figure out what the block layouts may be like in your mystery, but, looks like it may have a courthouse step as alternate blocks? I LOVE the color schemes you have chosen, and I am so happy to see you are doing a QOV in those vibrant colors! Your neutrals are delicious! Glad Sam is enjoying the warmer weather!

  2. I love mysteries too! Love your blocks~ little log cabins are so cute! At first I thought it might have a star in it~ I would be interested in the link. ;-) Have a happy day!

  3. THat looks like a fun mystery. I am waiting for the end to see what it will be!
